Confluent Maine offers far more than precision deep hole drilling. We support our gun drilling expertise with additional in-house precision machining resources, including CNC and conventional precision milling. Milling is essential to the design and function of many precision components in the aerospace, medical, energy and industrial sectors, where engineers and designers routinely rely on complex, highly detailed dimensional parts with tight tolerances.
CNC milling is the most common form of computer numerical control (CNC) machining. It performs the functions of both drilling and turning machines by creating precise 2D and 3D shapes, all while maintaining tolerances as tight as 0.0001 of an inch.
How Precision Milling Machines Operate
Unlike standard drilling machines that are limited to a single axis of motion, precision milling machines move along multiple axes (X, Y and Z). This allows milling machines to… >>Read more about precision milling machines
CNC milling machines use rotating cylindrical tools to cut a wide variety of shapes, including slots, holes and pockets. Milling machines can also be programmed to precisely profile, bore and resurface metals and metal alloys, such as steel or titanium.
Confluent Maine primarily uses milling in a support capacity at present. If you have a design or tubular component that may require milling capabilities, please contact us for more information.
